Printing a report

Former Member

I have a thick java report viewer that I would like to print from programmatically. I tried using ReportViewerBean.printView(), which works, but I would rather not get the Windows printer popup and print directly to the default printer.

Can this be done?

I figured it out. I was trying to print before the report was finished loading. I added a "wait" loop and everything works. Thanks again for the help!

Thank you for the response. I tried something similar and it now prints but for some reason I am getting a thread trace in the console and a popup with the same trace. Any ideas?


                        PrintService defaultPrinter = PrintServiceLookup.lookupDefaultPrintService();
                        PrintOutputController print = reportWorker.getReportClientDocument().getPrintOutputController();
                        PrintReportOptions options = new PrintReportOptions();
                        options.setNumberOfCopies(1);
                        options.setPrinterName(defaultPrinter.getName());
                        print.printReport(options);

Hi,

Could you try the below code snippet:

Retrieve the IReportPrinterOptions Interface from the report objects

IReportPrinterOptions PrinterOptions = oReport.getReportPrinterOptions();
printerOptions = setEnabled(true);
String printerName = XYZ; // Set the printer name
PrinterOptions.setPrinterName(printerName);
printerOptions.setCopies(1);

Let me know if this works
